How to reach the University of Hyderabad


Reaching Hyderabad

Hyderabad is connected to other major cities by air, rail and road. A few international flights are also operating to and from Hyderabad Airport. You can find the geographical location and map of Hyderabad from the site www.mapsofindia.com.

You can check the local weather from the site of India Meteorological Department.

By Air: Indian airlines, East West airlines, Jet airways, Modiluft, Sahara Air, Vayudoot etc are operating flights to and from Hyderabad International Airport. 

By Rail: The easiest way is to reach Secunderabad, the twin-city of Hyderabad. All major trains stops or departs from here. Hyderabad is also a major point of arrival or departure. Another major station in the city is Kacheguda.  

By Road: The city is easily accessible by road since it lies at the intersection of two major national highways: NH 7 (Nizamabad Road, Medchal Road) and NH 9.


Reaching University of Hyderabad

University of Hyderabad is known as HCU and Central University also.

1) From Secunderabad railway Station you can take an auto (or taxi) to reach the university. It is near to Gachibowli stadium (where  Games are held). You can come via Mehdipatnam  or Hi-Tech city route, both are nearly the same distance (around 25 Kms)

2) From Secunderabad railway station Platform 7A or from Hyderabad railway station Platform 1A( also known as Nampally station) or from Kacheguda railway station take local electric trains known as MMTS  train to  Lingampally, which is the last station .  This is cheaper, and comfortable. Journey time is less than an hour. For train timings please check this link.

Also you can have a look at the local train network in this map.

3) From Secunderabad bus station which is at a distance of less than 150m from the Secunderabad railway station, catch a local bus either to Medhipatnam (bus number 5,49, etc. ) or to Lingampally (BHEL) (bus number 226). From Medhipatnam, catch any bus going towards Lingampally (for example, bus numbers 216, 217). The University has two gates but enter via the "main gate", so get down in front of the main gate. From Lingampally also, 216, 217 number buses (or any bus going towards Gachibowli) will take you to the main gate of the University.

From Lingampally, HCU  is about 5Km and auto will cost around Rs. 25-30.
